A public meeting in Bridlington took place to discuss a new piece of public art planned for the coastline.
Residents, business owners and artists from Bridlington were invited along to hear plans for an artwork for the North Promenade, Bridlington, to mark one end of the Way of the Roses coast to coast cycle path.
The theme for the art work will be ‘travel in histories’ - focussing upon changes in the landscape, both human and physical with a specific interest in the chalk geology in the area.
Lead artist for the project, Matt Baker, also visited Bridlington School to discuss the plans with sixth form students and Year 8 pupils.
Lynn Collins, head of art at Bridlington School, said: “Having Matt Baker come to work with the children was a wonderful opportunity.
“The day was very inspiring and gave a real insight in to how a professional artist works.”
Helen Jackson, renaissance projects co-ordinator at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “The kids were great, they were really excited, it was nice to see.”
Helen continued: “It really pulled the community in which is one of the reasons we chose Matt.
A final design for the public art work is hoped to be ready by March 2013, with funding expected to come from the Arts Council.
